Notes

As both wheat and ragi has less gluten its hard to roll you can dust some flour while rolling. I have used light brown sugar you can use normal white sugar instead. You can refrigerate the dough for some 10 minutes before rolling but I have directly rolled and baked. You can cut into shapes you like. You can use cardamom powder instead of vanilla essence.
